Coca-Cola's 'secret ingredient revealed'

Post by Strawberry on Tue Feb 15, 2011 9:12 pm

This is a really interesting article and the link through to the US radio site about the history is good. Dont forget to read the comments at the end of the yahoo article though as there are now some very worried muslims out there.

I'm a bit concerned myself because if this is true then this could possibly be a link to alcholism where children are developing these receptors before adulthood (if that makes sense)


Often duplicated but never replicated, the Coca-Cola recipe has been a well-kept secret for years.

Created by medicinal pharmacist John Pemberton in 1886, the exact measures of each ingredient that make up the world-famous soft drink have been closely guarded - until now.

The recipe is said to contain the precise amount of all the different oils needed to create Merchandise 7X, Coca-Cola’s secret ingredient.

Even though Merchandise 7X makes up only one percent of the drink’s formula, the key ingredient is believed to give one of the world’s most popular soft drink its unique taste.

The official recipe is allegedly guarded 24-hours a day in a vault in Atlanta, Georgia. ...

Here is the ‘secret recipe’:

•Fluid extract of Coca 3 drams USP

•Citric acid 3 oz

•Caffeine 1oz

•Sugar 30 (it is unclear from the markings what quantity is required)

•Water 2.5 gal

•Lime juice 2 pints 1 qrt

•Vanilla 1oz

•Caramel 1.5oz or more to colour

•7X flavour (use 2oz of flavour to 5 gals syrup):

•Alcohol 8oz affraid

•Orange oil 20 drops

•Lemon oil 30 drops

•Nutmeg oil 10 drops

•Coriander 5 drops

•Neroli 10 drops

•Cinnamon 10 drops
